Distance Learners Book Delivery

If you are a member of the Temple University online learning community, and live at least 40 miles from Temple’s Main Campus, you can request the loan of items owned by the Charles and Ambler Libraries.

In partnership with the Office of Digital Education, the Charles and Ambler Libraries allow you to borrow circulating items by signing into your ILLiad account and submitting a request.

Items requested from Charles library will be mailed to your home address by UPS within one business day. Items requested from Ambler Campus Library can take an additional 1-3 business days.

Your borrowing privileges are the same as the students attending on campus programs. It is your responsibility to return items you have checked out by their due date. Loss and any damage that occurs to these items prior to their return is also your responsibility.

If you need a particular book chapter or article, you can use our Document Delivery service to request a pdf scan be sent to you via your ILLiad account.
